FARGO, N.D. (AP) — The Urban Plains Center hockey arena in Fargo has been renamed Scheels Arena.

The Fargo-based sporting goods retailer and the Metro Sports Foundation announced the naming rights partnership Wednesday.

The foundation has been working to secure a naming rights sponsor since the 5,000-seat arena opened in 2008.

The arena is home to the Fargo Force, who play in the United States Hockey League, as well as Fargo high school hockey teams.

New signs are expected to be in place by Oct. 15, in time for the first Force game of the season.
